I have just purchased a similar scanner, the IRIScan Anywhere 5 from IRIS, a Canon subsidiary (which made me choose it): https://www.irislink.com/EN-BE/c1698/IRIScan-Anywhere-5---IRIScan-Anywhere-5-Wifi---Cordless-Scanner.aspx I was amazed how fast it scans, even at 1200 DPI, at least as fast as the big copier/scanner at work. I need it for scanning 50y old stencils, which are a bit wider than A4 and some 2" longer. It will simply scan until the paper runs out, so length doesn't matter. This means I don't need to scan A3 for stencils. This scanner is a bit cheaper than the Doxie, I got it for 2/3rd the price in a promotion sale. It comes with its own software, but you can use any OCR app with it as you let the scanner produce standard image files. They have a book version of this with which you move the scanner over the page by hand.

Sir Jony Ive is a brilliant industrial designer but he has never had a clue about what it takes to make his "wonderful" objects usable for humans.

I love Ive's hardware designs, but his UI efforts not so much. I think his interface design is pretty worthless, a classic in form over function. That has been straightened out a bit in iOS. But the tendency to make everything as meaningless grey as possible in Finder windows so that you can no longer recognize the icons at a glance and have to read the accompanying text, is in my opinion idiotic. I hope Apple will correct that too.
